This cabinet card portrait features a very pretty young woman. Her hat compliments her appearance. She is likely in her teenage years. The photograph is a bit unusual in that the cabinet card provides a close-up view horizontally rather than the typical vertical perspective. The photographer of this image is A. Brauner, who operated a studio in Zagreb, Croatia. In terms of present day geography, Zagreb is the capital and the largest city in Croatia.  (SOLD)

This unique cabinet card is certainly not in great condition. A previous owner trimmed the card to fit it into a frame. In addition, the image has a major crease running through most of the left side. Worse yet, the image was marred by an epidemic of black spots appearing on the body and face of the dog. Why would someone deface this terrific photograph by putting black dots all over this cute dog’s picture? I’m just kidding. Actually, this cabinet card features a Dalmation. The Dalmation breed originated in the Republic of Croatia. There was research conducted about this breed as early as the 1700’s. The breed itself was developed and cultivated in England. Speaking of England, the photographer who produced this photograph has the last name of Churchill. His studio was located in Arcade, New York. Clark E. Churchill is cited in the 1880 census.  He is listed as 32 years of age and married to Ella Churchill (age 27). His occupation is described as photographer. In 1900 the couple remained in Arcade and Clark was working as Postmaster. The 1920 census also includes Clark and Ella living in Arcade. Clark is described as a retired merchant.
